The Revelation Of Jesus Christ On The Future Of The World And The Creation Of The New Jerusalem
“Revelation” is the last book of the Bible; within it contains the prophecy of Jesus Christ on the future of the world and bringing about a world that has no pain, sorrow, sickness, or death; A world that holds the “New Jerusalem” where He will reign as our King. At the same time, Revelation tells of the birth pains the earth must go through on the way to the time Jesus will reign.
The apostle John wrote the book of Revelation when Jesus took him in spirit from Patmos, the island he had been imprisoned on because of his preaching the Good News, and told him to write down the things he was about to see. This was during a time when Christians, especially the disciples of Jesus, were persecuted, imprisoned, and even put to death because of their love for the Son of God.
The book of Revelation can be somewhat difficult to understand; however, before you begin reading, say a prayer that you will have a full understanding of the scripture as you read, then continue reading and perhaps reread it; you will find all the scripture is clear as to what is coming in the Time of the End.

The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave Him to show His servants—things which must shortly take pace.

Blessed is he who reads and those who hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written in it; for the time is near.Revelation 1:1 -3
John, to the seven churches which are in Asia: Grace to you and peace from Him who is and who was and who is to come, and from the seven Spirits who are before His throne, and from Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, the firstborn from the dead, and the ruler over the kings of the earth. To Him who loved us and washed us from our sins in His own blood, and has made us kings and priests to His God and Father, to Him be glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen. Behold, He is coming with clouds, and every eye will see Him, even they who pierced Him. And all the tribes of the earth will mourn because of Him. Even so, Amen. “I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End,” says the Lord, “who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty.”Revelation 1:4-8
“He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes I will give to eat from the tree of life, which is in the midst of the Paradise of God.” And to the angel of the church in Smyrna write, ‘These things says the first and the Last, who was dead, and came to life: I know your works, tribulation, and poverty (but you are rich); and I know the blasphemy of those who say they are Jews and are not, but are a synagogue if Satan. Do not fear any of those things which you are about to suffer. Indeed, the devil is about to throw some of you into prison, that you may be tested, and you will have tribulation ten days. Be faithful until death, and I will give you the crown of life. He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. He who overcomes shall not be hurt by the second death.”’Revelation 2:7-11
You have a few names even in Sardis who have not defiled their garments; and they shall walk with Me in white, for they are worthy. He who overcomes shall be clothed in white garments, and I will not blot out his name from the Book of Life; but I will confess his name before My Father and before His angels. He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.”’Revelation 3:4-6
Whenever the living creatures give glory and honor and thanks to Him who sits on the throne, who lives forever and ever, the twenty-four elders fall down before Him who sits on the throne and worship Him who lives forever and ever, and cast their crowns before the throne, saying: “You are worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honor and power; for You created all things, And by Your will they exist and were created.”Revelation 4:9-11
Now when He had taken the scroll, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb, each having a harp, and golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints. And they sang a new song, saying: “You are worthy to take the scroll, and to open its seals; for You were slain, and have redeemed us to God by Your blood Out of every tribe and tongue and people and nation, and have made us “kings” and priests tour God; And we shall reign on the earth.” Then I looked, and I heard the voice of many angels around the throne, the living creatures, and the elders; and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands and thousands, saying with a loud voice: “Worthy is the Lamb who was slain to receive power and riches and wisdom, and strength and honor and glory and blessings!” And every creature which is in heaven and on the earth and under the earth and such as are in the sea, and all that are I them, I heard saying: “Blessing and honor and glory and power be to Him who sits on the throne, And the Lamb forever and ever!”Revelation 5:8-14
Take note that the very first scripture in the Book of Revelation says:
The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave Him to show His servants—things which must shortly take place, and He sent and signified it by His angel to His servant John, who bore witness to the word of God, and to the testimony of Jesus Christ, to all things that he saw. Blessed is he who reads and those who hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written in it; for the time is near.Revelation 1:1
The scriptures above do not enlighten you about all the information in the Book of Revelation; for that, you must read it several times; when you do, you will uncover the prophecy Jesus was giving you, and you will understand what it means. Ask your Father for a complete understanding before reading the Book, and you will be amazed at how much you truly understand. Ask your pastor or someone knowledgeable in the Bible verses you may not understand.
Reading Revelation is not only a roadmap to our future but also Jesus’ prophecy for the things that must happen before He returns to reign as our King; praise be to Him for all things, and we look forward to that day when we meet Him in the air. May God bless you in all your endeavors, with Him at your side and always in your heart.
Please remember that God is the answer to everything, and Jesus Christ is the way to get those answers. Just ask and allow Him to come into your heart. He is always walking with you, both in hard times and times of rejoicing. He will never forsake you, remember all the times that you didn’t know where your next moment would take you; it was Jesus that stood beside you and headed you in the right direction. When Jesus was ascending into heaven, He placed within the hearts of all who believed in His Holy Spirit to carry with them, to help them learn and become better Christians. Use the Holy Spirit within you to help you understand God’s teachings and what He expects of the humans He created.
